The Room In Which The Floor Lamp Will Be Placed. One of the first things you will need to consider when purchasing a contemporary lamp is the room in which the lamp will be placed. Obviously, your choice for a child`s playroom lamp will different from the lamp you choose for your modern living room, or your formal dining room. The decor of the rooms you use contemporary ones will in some ways limit your choice of the lamps you choose. A chrome and glass lamp will look out of place in a Victorian living or bedroom. So make sure that the lamp you choose fits the room in which it will be placed.
Mix and Match Color Bulbs to Match Lampshades. The unique part of purchasing a floor lamp is that you may change lampshades to the base of your favorite lamp, just as you can match different colored light bulbs to create varying effects within a room. Depending on the time of day and other outside factors, various lampshade colors transform light into an array of shades, but red, blue, green, and even yellow lights can establish the atmosphere into a controlled setting, such as a romantic environment to a room set aside for contemplation, withdrawal, or reflection.
Floor lamps are no longer just something you find at your Grandma`s house collecting dust, but are now used in any contemporary, traditional or vintage setting at home or office. True, some styles can be mixed and matched, like adding a beautifully designed Tiffany floor lamp to a moderately contemporary decor. But, reverse that idea and add a contemporary lamp to a Victorian style room and you`ll get a "yikes" reaction from guest, if only in their minds. Look through magazines or visit a furniture store to check out how they do it.
The brightest lamp that you can purchase today in any store was designed and made circa 1920. It is also the most versatile lamp that you can buy anywhere. Further it will outlast most any modern lamp that you can find at any price. This antique floor lamp is known by a numerous names such as: 6 Way Floor Lamp, Reflector Floor Lamp, and "JUNIOR". The design begins with a heavy metal base sometimes highly decorated with an upright tubing leading up to a central electrical socket surrounded by 3 arm lights (4 lights total). The central light takes a 3 way bulb (low-medium-high) that is often a MOGUL size which is larger than a standard socket with higher wattage (100-200-300 watts). The three arm lights are controlled by a switch that can turn on separately just 1, 2 or all 3 of the arm lights. Further, many of these JUNIORS had a small light under the base which provided a very subtle night time floor light operated by a foot switch mounted on the side of the base. As if this were not enough, the central top socket is encased in a large metal cup which holds a white waffle patterned glass bowl that reflects light upward to bounce of the ceiling. A fabric or silk shade (also called JUNIOR shade) rests upon the glass reflector bowl to reflect light downward for reading. A single arm light can provide a simple night light or at it brightest setting, it can light up an entire room. There is no brighter lamp or more versatile lamp available anywhere today and it was designed and made nearly 100 years ago!
